UKAHT is pleased to announce that the Nissen Hut at Port Lockroy, which was re-constructed in March 2010, has been awarded the 2011 North West Regional Structural Award by the Institute of Structural Engineers. The Nissen Hut was reconstructed on the site of the original 1944 Nissen and is in keeping with the historical context of the station. It acts as comfortable living quarters for the seasonal staff that operate Port Lockroy during the Antarctic summer months.
